Train Simulator 2012 Part 6

Conclusion

Train Simulator 2012 brings welcome graphics updates to the series, plus a bit of new content for current owners. New buyers of Train Simulator 2012 will be getting the “Horseshoe Curve” expansion that really shows off a high level of detail, and high quality content.

Train Simulator 2012 succeeds in not only providing a very immersive visual experience, but does so with scalable graphics options such that even lower spec’ed PCs such as my own can still enjoy a taste of the improvements at a lower visual quality.

Good

  • Beautiful and immersive visual updates.
  • Usefully scalable graphics options.
  • Selectable “TSX” option for players wanting greater performance on older hardware.
  • Some new content included for present owners.
  • Includes “The Horseshoe Curve” for new buyers.

Could Be Better

  • Occasional crashes while loading, or while using the Steam screenshot system.
  • Lower quality shadows have a few unappealing qualities.
  • Minor annoyances with my Steam client.
